Fun Fact Friday 11.08.13

Warning - it's a no picture kind of is it Friday?!

Better yet, is it me or is anyone else still having the hardest time grasping the fact that it's already November? People are already starting their Christmas shopping? Insanity. This year flew by like none other, I guess I just need to accept it. But my head is still spinning at the fact that Christmas is so close (secretly pretty excited to decorate the new house for it though...)

In a week that was pretty much a whirlwind, what do I have to share with you? Hmm. Good question! Here's a few glimpses into this week, as well as some great links I've found. 

1.  Sunday I bought a package of 4 chicken breasts and put them all right into the slow cooker. Added a diced onion, salt & pepper, garlic powder, and enough water to just cover the chicken. I set it on low for 6 hours and then shredded it all. Best decision ever. There is so much you can do with plain shredded chicken- BBQ pulled chicken, buffalo chicken, soft tacos, etc. I even used the foodsaver on some and froze it for a future use. Frozen meals that are already cooked = best time saver ever.

2. J and I started Insanity this week. It's intense! I hated it Wednesday, but then loved it Thursday...weird. Hoping to tone up a bit, maybe lose a few pounds before the Holidays- my weakness! And perfect timing, Lindsey did a write up yesterday with her thoughts on this exercise program. We're also loosely following the meal plan. We have quickly fallen for these delish protein packed pancakes (which taste like French toast if you ask me). 

3. And the number one reason I agreed to partake in Insanity workouts at 5 darling husband. If you haven't already ready this article, it certainly puts things in perspective. Like when your husband decides he'd rather get healthy in a natural form (i.e. diet & exercise) than take medication, but needs your support. This guy supports me through thick and thin, so yes I will do Insanity just for him. 

4. Here's another fun article I came across this week. These things are important! If you're married or live with your significant other, which of these did you discuss? Though J & I didn't have a serious discussion about many of these, they seemed understood. Or we agreed that one of us had a better method and went with it. J owns the "way" the dish washer should be filled....

5. And one more fun little list. This person for me? I think there are a few. Hands down, my big sis for #1. And #2-#6 would be my best girlfriends for sure. Thank goodness for these ladies!

Oh, and insider scoop - 40% off Sherwin-Williams paint for preferred guests (it's easy, all they need is an email address). We'll be there!

I hope you have a fantastic weekend! 
We've got some home project lined up over here, no surprise there. If you haven't already left your opinion on the nightstands, I'd so appreciate your help!
